All my handmade art to wear is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. There are no raw edges in any of my work. Each seam or edge is either hemmed or serged.  I learned to sew in 4-H, Home Ec classes in high school and many lessons from my mother. 

To create a beautiful composition, manipulation of the fabric is performed, color is added.  Curvilinear lines are produced.

Your body is the canvas that becomes the composition.

To collaborate, is always an adventure where visions are fulfilled with surprises. Shibori is always a gift and a surprise

I start with composition, a mixing of colors, lines and shapes.  What’s beautiful on the wall, draped over a chair, is beautiful on the body.

Always seeking depth and movement, interest and contrast.  I am not seeking flat.  

Flat is what I begin with, white flat fabric.

The composition is the point of focus at any given moment.  Every composition seeks harmony and unity.  What creates unity is the way the elements are arranged.  For the most unified composition I seek variety, balance, movement, and harmony when arranging the colors and silks.  In dyeing fabric these factors are considered as I create formulas.  The body is the canvas that becomes the composition.

Your body, as canvas, seeks balance and movement.

Your body has rhythm.

These are all the things I think about. 

First there was an idea.  Then a swirling energy of thoughts and ideas that constantly change and then begin to take shape in manifestation.  And as you wear your truly wearable art, as it ages, it, too, will change.

Hand wash, cold water, dry on delicate or line dry, use silk setting to iron.
